But Naples has always had a prominent role in the course of its millennial history, during the Roman Empire in Naples was spoken Greek, also was one of the most prosperous capitals of Europe under the reign of the Bourbons, how can we forget its hegemonic role in the culture of 700, so as to be crowned as one of the cradles of the Italian and European enlightenment.
In any case, everyone has fallen in love with its extraordinary beauty, and as the great poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote: "I hardly recognize myself anymore, I feel like another man. Yesterday I said to myself: either you've been crazy up to here, or you are crazy now".
Indeed, these words let well understand the feelings and emotions of those who immerse themselves in this beautiful city. Beauty is something that overwhelms, that makes us look at everything with different eyes. It is no coincidence that the meaning of Naples is "new city". Let's try, therefore, to give some indication of which places, which panoramas, have inspired poets, writers, artists, but also ordinary people over the centuries. Let's go on the hunt for some of the most beautiful views of Naples.
The panoramas of Naples: a glimpse into paradise
There are many views and places that can literally enrapture not only visitors, but also the inhabitants of the city. Enumerating them all in one article is actually impossible. Therefore, we will limit ourselves to indicating those that are the most significant for the history of the city.
Defined by many as "the most beautiful in the world" the Naples waterfront is the place where every Neapolitan must walk. It is an indissoluble interweaving of scenic beauty and art: in fact, at the beginning of the promenade, at largo Sermoneta, it is possible to admire the seventeenth-century fountain of Sebeto. At the center of the route instead we find the legendary Castel dell'Ovo. Without forgetting the famous Villa Comunale.
Another truly magical place where you can admire the majesty of the Gulf of Naples - and not only - is the Virgiliano Park. It is situated on the promontory of Posillipo. From the Belvedere the view can range from Vesuvius to the coast of Sorrento, the island of Capri and the area of Campi Flegrei.
Remaining always in the Posillipo area, via Petrarca is considered by the Neapolitans as "the postcard of Naples". It is not a coincidence that it is one of the most famous streets in the world, which gives back to the passers-by wonderful views. It is often the destination of newlyweds, who decide to have their photo taken there.
The Camaldoli Urban Park is an integral part of the Camaldoli Hill. The big Belvedere of the park is the highest point of the whole city, and thanks to its strategic position it is possible to see in its whole conformation a great part of the Neapolitan and Phlegrean territory.
On the highest part of the Vomero hill, the Certosa di San Martino (Charterhouse of St. Martin), adjacent to Castel Sant'Elmo, dominates unchallenged. And it is right there, from the windows of the Certosa, but also from the Largo outside it, that it is possible to admire Naples, from one of the most characteristic perspective angles of the entire city.
These are only some of the places in Naples where it is possible to admire the endless beauty of the city. Naples is truly the city of dreams.
